: there is definitely a debt ceiling looming looming over boston. is there looming over boston. is there a fight looming in the republican party? will they hold line on spending cuts? with one this senator mike of utah. thank you for coming on the show tonight. let's start with something that senator mitch mcconnell had to say on this topic. the president has said that this is no time to talk about cuts. mitch mcconnell said over the past three decades, u.s. presidents and lawmakers from both parties have routinely use the debt limit debate to reform government spending. the president may not want to cut spending as part of the upcoming debt limit debate but it shows deficit reduction measures have increased and are about as standard in washington as a cherry blossom festival. i'm sure that you agree that? >> absolutely. i agree wholeheartedly with that assessment. that is why we need to have this discussion now. it is all the more appropriate for the president to be telling us we can't make any demands accompanying his request for yet another debt ceiling height. gerri: how did you react to the presenc

ceiling under president bush when he was a senator back in 2006? >> yeah, he regrets it. he acknowledges that was part of the grandstanding approach. because what both parties have done in the past is use the debt ceiling as an opportunity to basically vilify and castigate the economic policies of whoever the president was. and that's -- it is one thing to use it as a tool to try to make a point. it is another thing to actually plunge us into default. the president regrets it. steny hoyer our whip in the democratic side acknowledges that he should not have voted against the debt ceiling increases when he did it on occasion. so it's really time for both sides to renounce the use of this tactic which is really so destructive to our economy and renounce it altogether. the republicans can use it now because they have the majority. the democrats should renounce using it in the future as well. >> john: to say nothing of the fact it is one thing to vote against it when you're squandering a bill clinton surplus on tax cuts for those who don't need tax cuts pre-2008. it is another thing when you'

collins of maine saying the debt ceiling is going to have to be raised. even the coch brothers don't want to allow debt default. the president of americans for prosperity says they're advising members of congress. focusing on the debt ceiling makes the message more difficult. so we're starting to see some kind of responsible leadership. this is just going too far. >> and newt gingrich agrees with that sentiment, as well. i think what you're going to see is more folks, you know, a chamber of commerce republicans, folks from the business community i think are really going to start speaking up as this debt ceiling starts to loom closer in the middle of february. when it really reaches its limit, you'll have some pressure from the corporate community really bearing down on the house gop to get something done. so i think that's one of the things that's going to happen. it could be that they delay these spending cuts in talking about them either around the sequestration or around the time when they have to renew the continueing resolution to fund the government. this is what they've been talkin
